I have been going to the 2nd Ave Deli for years (both locations). I always feel that I know what I'm going to get. The service is almost always good, and the food is always fresh and tasty. It's always a safe bet. The annoying...More

Went there to meet a good friend (who happens to be Jewish). This place is amazing! I had the pastrami sandwich. OMG! The meat melted in my mouth. Amazing coleslaw, pickles, coffee, and pastries. A bit pricey but will definitely return!
